Just the right balance between ease of use and accessible power-user features

Ability to quickly review proxy statements for data on executive compensation programs and assist in developing/reviewing peer groups.

Pros

While I think the basic search interface is easy to use and well-laid out, the thing I like the most is the ability to click on search results and be taken directly, in PDF filings, to the highlighted section. This is incredibly useful and speeds up document review.

Cons

I find the feedback when selecting items in the filters often confusing: for instance, when putting in a dollar range, it is unclear whether you just click away from the control, click on it, or whether there is some other step you are supposed to take to make the selection "stick".

Great experience, with the software and also with customer serice team

We have been using Certent for our SEC filings since Q1 2015, this software allowed us save a lot of time during the filing process, and it also contributed to make the filing process much more efficient. We have received immediate answer in relation to XBRL and tool functionallity from the assigned team and we have really had a great experience with the tool. I reccommend Certent to other filers as a great tool to simplify the filing process.

I am a translator and I make a daily use of Certent Disclosure Net, which is very helpful

Easy of use and very helpful

Pros

What I like most is the possibility to find the French translation of most regulated documents and the option to view the English and French version side to side.

Cons

What I like leaset about this software is the fact that no results are found if the search string is too long, even when the document does exist.

Great software, easy to use!

Our company has really enjoyed using this software. It's very easy to learn how to use the product and new employees within our department have caught on very quickly. Their customer service department is always very timely on their responses and has been extremely helpful whenever we've had issues that have come up. They are also great at looking for feedback for any improvements and have been responsive towards any suggestions we have had. Overall, we are very happy with this product!

Indispensable tool for disclosure research

Reduction in time spent on research and reduction in cost for a source of IFRS standards

Pros

Quick searching in SEDAR and EDGAR databases for specific disclosures and SEC comment letters. Easy search terms. Lots of features, including SEDI, accounting standards, document compare etc.

Cons

The results screen lacks in a big way compared to other software programs, i.e. in a search that yields 200 or so results, you can only see 15 on screen at any time, unless you adjust your screen resolution. Some of the onscreen real estate seems wasted.

The easiest way to search for and through public company announcements and documents.

Advanced search capability

Pros

The ability to enter keyword search terms (such as names or a description of a transaction) to narrow down relevant documents within a particular company or to look for examples of similar documents from other companies.

Cons

Document sub-categories are not created explicitly for Australian transactions, but use generic headings applicable to other countries (ie. there is no category called "Appendix 3B" but instead is listed under "Change of Director's Interest Notice").

The depth and breadth of my ability to perform a search is amazing.

Pros

The breadth of information available is extremely useful, ever since the data moved beyond Canadian filings.

Have used DisclosureNet for many years. An e cellent and indispensable product.

Faster research on competitors and also insider trading etc. Like the triggers for Emil notifications.

Pros

Easy to use. The system is easily understandable for new users and provides fast response time to searches initiated. I especially like the search tools that the system utilizes.

Cons

Lack of an app. For the iPad it must be used with safari browser. It would be useful to have an app available to use with the product.

Efficiency on research.

Pros

Cons

When running a search for something you know is in the database but does not come up in a keyword search.

Your solution to your compliance!

Pros

This tool is very useful in consolidating internal and external reports using an inherent restrictive research engine. This will help you easily control financial reports within the organization while tracking its state in terms of compliance to meet the standards set by the prior regulatory bodies.

Cons

I honestly can’t think of any. But as what others tell me, setting it up would quite take you some time. But other than that, it’s perfect.
